One cardboard tube from wrapping paper is the perfect size for one strand of Christmas lights. Cut a slit at the end of the tube and slide the end of the light strand into the slit, then start wrapping the light strand tightly around the tube.
This is a great way to store the lights, but you will find it handy the next time you are ready to decorate the tree, too. You unravel a small bit of lights at a time, string them on the tree and simply pass the tube to a helper on the other side of the tree who does the same.
